There are serious problems nowadays in managing and maintaining the credibility of Islamic sources. When Allah allows or forbids something, we should try to understand the wisdom behind it, orelse we'll end up having an Islam interpreted just like non-muslim extremists interpret Islam.
For example, on multiple occasions, the Quran mentions freeing slaves as kaffarah for one's sins. Non-muslims would use these verses to imply that Islam allows slavery. Sticking literally to texts is good sometimes, and bad some other times.
Since the old days, and up until today, christians would have drawings of their saints, of who they claim is Jesus, or of who they claim is Mary, and would bow and kneel to these drawings. They would pray in front of them, and kiss the drawings. (I have witnessed this personally).
Giving the slightest spiritual significance to anything material besides what Allah permitted (like the Kaaba for example) is considered shirk and forbidden in Islam...
As long as your drawings are not given any spiritual significance Inshallah it's okay to draw. It's all about what your intentions are when you draw. I am an Arab Muslim and I'm sure besides the very few scholars who push things to the extreme, if I ask this question to any scholar or sheikh he'd think I'm joking. Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him says:
Never be extreme regarding religion. Many nations have been destroyed
before you only because of extremism in religion
The Best Of Dealings Are The Ones Done In Moderation
Here's a good read
Last but not least, if you still have any doubts, draw, and when you're done, just tear down the paper and throw it away. Do what feels most right to you and know that many schools of Islam do not forbid drawing as long as the drawings are not given any spiritual significance, and are not meant to play God in any possible way.
Allah Knows Best!
